In Downwell, you descend into a deep well filled with monsters and traps, equipped with the Gunboots — a set of boots that let you shoot bullets from your feet. You’ll be using it to clear your way of enemies, or as a way to slow your descent using its recoil. On your way down you’ll find different guns, shops with helpful items, and upgrades like explosive balloons or a set of silverware to eat your foes with. The well is randomly generated, so no two trips down will ever be the same.

Genre: Action game, Hack and slash
Publisher: Activision
Developer: Platinum Games

Meet the Turtles! Assemble your team in in 4-player co-op mode!

Raphael may be the strong silent type, but he never backs down from a good brawl. He’s the master of stealth and can make himself invisible to enemies until he’s ready to unleash a devastating surprise attack. And when he partners with one of his Turtle teammates, the two create a shell-slamming shockwave that knocks the Foot clan off its feet.

Donatello is the teams’ resident tech guru, spending his down time inventing gadgets and keeping the vehicles running. During battle, he’s always quick to toss a handful of pizza slices into the air when his brothers need health. And when he joins forces with a teammate, the two dismantle the enemy defenses with a barrage of teleportation attacks.

Michelangelo is always good for a laugh, but don’t underestimate his skills. His disco moves mesmerize enemies into cutting a rug of their own. And if his fellow teammates’ special abilities need refreshing, Mikey grabs a pair of pompoms and choreographs a miniature pep rally during battle to give them a little pick-me-up.

Leonardo is the team leader, and his drive for perfection is unmatched. His brand of ninjutsu gives him the ability to slow down time, allowing him to execute lightning-fast strikes with pin-point precision. And when he teams up with another Turtle for a whirlwind attack, their enemies don’t stand a chance.

So that’s our weekly roundup of what’s in stores next week. Will you be purchasing any of these new titles? Let us know in the comments. You can also see the new releases next week for Xbox One over here.
